    Spoiler comments if you haven’t watched yet….

    - The Leonard Nimoy credit in the beginning kinda spoiled the surprise.
    - We know what the teleportation did the Jones’ body…leads to disintegration.
    - The ending scene with Astrid was such a steep slope up, then a complete let down!
    - The nanites have Mr. X’s symbol on them.
    - Is this Bell or Alt-Bell??
    - In the original timeline, Alt-Bell died in a car crash at a young age. In the new timelime, Bell supposedly died in a car crash in 2005, even though Bell visited Walter at St. Claires after his death…obviously, one of these was Alt-Bell.

    -Predictions of possible futures are coming true (eg. Olivia controlling her powers, Bell alive…)
    -Is Bell aware of the rewritten timeline?
    -Did he really mean Peter when he said to eliminate “the bishop”?
    -Were Bell’s motives the same in the original timeline? Was Nina lying or just misguessing in the season 1 finale, when we assumed Jones was trying to kill Bell?
    – If we assume that Jones was always working for Bell, it means a few things. First, Nicholas Boone was foreshadowing all of this when he called out Bell as the prime financer for ZFT. It means Jones was trying to cross over to work for Bell (and carry out what we didn’t see until season 4), not kill him. But why did Walternate try keeping Olivia from meeting Bell, by using the shapeshifters to try to kill her…what does he know? Has he been on our side all along? Sure didn’t seem that way in season 3…

    If alt-Bell really did die as a child in the original timeline (Belly was the one who told the Fringe team this tidbit and it’s possible that he lied and faked records, but why?), then he should also be dead in the current timeline. Why? Because alt-Bell would have died decades before Peter was even born, and the new timeline should only diverge from the old one at the point where Peter was not rescued from the ice as a boy by the Observer.

    In the original timeline, there was no mention of Belly having cancer, and he didn’t die or fake his death in a car accident. The first reason (although I’m sure there could be plenty of factors since Peter’s death as a child had a major butterfly-effect on everything) that I thought of that might have caused Belly’s cancer after Peter’s death was that the death triggered Belly to start smoking. As everyone who watches serial sci-fi knows (see “The X-Files), smoking turns people evil. ;>
